"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
First Product Review: Starbucks Iced Coffee (Caramel Flavor)
I saw this at the grocery store today and I just had to buy it. It was about $5 for a 48oz bottle which isn’t too bad. (That will make 2-3 servings in my Venti cold cup, which definitely saves money over going to Starbucks and buying iced coffee there!) They had other flavors, including Lightly Sweetened, Original, and a couple of others that I don’t remember, because I went after the Caramel as soon as I saw it (caramel is my favorite!)
I got home, washed out my cold cup (I’ve been using it for my Crystal Lite), poured some over ice and added my favorite creamer (review of that to come!)
It is INCREDIBLE! You definitely taste the caramel flavor but it’s not TOO strong (I want my coffee to taste like…y’know…coffee), but it also isn’t overwhelmingly strong like other iced coffees I’ve had to the point where you have to use half creamer to cut the bitterness.
Overall I’d give it an 8/10, just because it’s Starbucks so of course it’s a little over-priced. But it’s absolutely delicious and I would buy it again to have iced coffee on hand whenever I want (particularly nice in the summer!)
super important!! for those unaware, in the us sex toys can be sold as ‘novelty items’ and as such their production is not monitored and held to the standards of the FDA, which means sex toy producers can use extremely toxic carcinogens like pthalates in their toys. this can be averted by buying non plastic toys, but glass n stuff aren’t for everyone!
